My van is a 2003 sillhuete olds.
I have 200,000 miles on transmission. The fluid is black with some red in it. Should I change it? Or should I get new transmission?

Honda's are every 30k just drain and fill, no flushing!! If you flush it you will grenade the tranny.

I do a drain and fill on my Cherokee every spring.

DexIII fluid is cheap. And it's super easy to do.

I am quite annoyed that this attendant tried to scam me, take my $160 for a service I dont need, and possibly damage my vehicle with their trashy fluid. I think people like this should be treated as criminals.
When a shop gives away the oil change they have to do something to make it up.

yup.. a lot of vehicles are strictly two plugs. A drain plug and a fill plug.

No use in getting a new tranny if yours still shifts ok. On some high-mileage vehicles it could do more harm than good to change the transmission fluid.
